  • West Palm Beach, Delray, Boca etc

    What would you say my chances of getting hired by these departments are?

    My 1st choices are obviously WPB and PBCSO.

    I have a associates degree in CJ.
    30 credits shy of a BA.
    Part Time/Intermittent Police Academy in MA.
    3 Years of Loss Prevention/Assets Protection experience.

    Just tired of the civil service BS....and I'm at the tip of my fingers to moving down to WPB area.

    Right now a lot of departments in Florida are on a temp. freeze due to the property tax legislation. I think you need a 4 yr degree with Boca. It really depends on WHAT you want to do with your career. PBSO will have the most opportunity for advancement and speciality units. I think Boca pays the most of the dept's you mentioned.

      No you do not need a 4 yr degree to work for Boca, that's Coral Springs PD that requires a 4 yr. You need at least 60 credits (which is basically an Associates Degree) which it seems you have, so you're fine. I work for Boca and it is a great dept. to work for. The other's you mentioned are very good as well though, can't really go wrong. We are not on a hiring freeze at the moment so if you decided to, you should apply. I know we just hired a few more people recently, so give it a try. If you have any questions, let me know. Good luck to you.
